This is an old-fashioned Chinese show, but it moves along quickly and was entertaining. Worth seeing once while you are in China.

This opera is really worth watching becaus eof lighting, props and costumes. The story (changing face masks) wasn't illustrated but it was colorfully presented. They allow photos and videos.
